Brown criticizes Coakley for remarks at MLK event

(CNN) – Massachusetts Republican Senate candidate Scott Brown criticized Democratic rival Martha Coakley Monday after she made political comments at a Martin Luther King Day breakfast the two candidates attended.

During her remarks, Coakley said she is running for the Senate because Dr. King's work remains unfinished, and then asked for the audience's votes in the special election Tuesday.

As brown was leaving the event, he said told reporters he was "disappointed" Coakley made political comments at an event billed as nonpolitical.

    Oh sure, but it is okay for his campaign to call my house on a Sunday, the Lords day, not once, not twice but 5 times! What a hypocrit.
